Wasserman Schultz: 'We're Going to Hold the Senate'

On Sunday’s “Fox News Sunday,” Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) appeared with her GOP counterpart, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.

In that appearance, Wasserman Schultz was asked by host Chris Wallace if she remained confident the Democrats would maintain their control of the U.S. Senate.

Partial transcript as follows:

WALLACE: Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz, you can make this a really news-making thing – are you going to lose the Senate?

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, we’re going to hold the Senate. And we’re going to hold the Senate because over the next couple weeks, and leading up to even today, the one question that voters will ask themselves, Chris, is ‘who has my back?’ On issue after issue, Democrats have stood up for jobs, for the economy, for investing in education and health care — those are the issues that voters are talking about. And the Republicans have engaged in trying to take their health care away, to oppose minimum wage and I just want to address what Reince said about the ground game. Imagine – could anyone have imagined that two weeks before Election Day the Republicans would have to invest in South Dakota, Kansas and Georgia — blood-red states that they are not worried they might lose?

PRIEBUS: Debbie, you guys are losing everywhere, and the president hasn’t had anybody’s back. He hasn’t even had your back. And so, I don’t know whose back these Democrats have but it’s not the American people’s back.
